Chan launches school trucks
FOUR schools in the Namatanai Local Level Government became the next lot of proud recipients of new school trucks launched recently.
This includes Sohun and Matantiduk primary schools on the east-coast and Ulaputur and Labur on the west-coast of Namatanai.
Member for Namatanai Byron Chan together with Governor Sir Julius Chan who officiated at the launching said it was his (Mr Chan) commitment in improving the quality of education in the province.
Mr Chan who is also the Joint District Priority & Budget Priority Committee Chairman (JDP&BPC) so far provided for in the budget more than K1 million this year to buy trucks for schools thus, complimenting the provincial government’s free and subsidised education policy.
He noted that the trucks will not only help schools but the local communities as well and urged the various school boards to take good care of them.
The other schools that the MP announced will benefit include Kabanos, Tubuana and Palabong on the west coast of Namatanai.
The first recipients that benefited from this programme include Logogo Primary School, Namatanai Secondary and Vocational School and Fonly Township on Tanga Island.
